Phil Robertson's family is in solidarity ... they're not doing "Duck Dynasty" without him, and now A&E has a huge problem. It's the biggest cable reality show ever ... and if the Robertsons walk, they could lose several hundreds of THOUSAND dollars!

Plus, Kim Kardashian was near tears because she said people were focusing on her body too much -- so why in the world is she parading around in a bikini for setup photos???

And, French Montana is the latest celebrity to get a monkey as a pet -- and pisses off a lot of people in the process.

Kim used her body to get where she is. Now that it's not so hot, she thinks people are focusing on it too much ? Typical Kardashian mindset.

Personally I don't like this show I knew from the get go that these red neck hillbillies were racist so at the end of the day for me I could care less and yes a&e knew these hillbillies were racist it was only when this red neck did a interview for a magazine and revealed his views about different types of people came out so now a&e have to save face truly pathetic

It's popular with 90%+ of the audience in rural, southern, uneducated counties/markets. Outside the south, no audience delivery at all. A&E will pay them and cancel the show, which they own, and hold them to the non-compete, if they are pushed. It may do a big number, but Mercedez and Lexus are not fighting for inventory in the show. Cracker Barrel sums up their audience perfectly - people who buy cheese from a canister. Let them go and take the write off.

It is better for All american's that .....CHRISTIANS be secluded to a place like GITMO. They are the real terroist in america and should not be allowed near other rational thinkers....especially our children who they tend to molest on a regular basis. And those that are in a cult like a duck dynasty or a mormon or extreme muslim's should be guarded closely and fed only left overs (from the dog food bowl).

I am sure they understand why these rules are necessary. It is clear society can not control them.
